The Transparant measured the water temperature after the plant refused to give the official measurement data.

With a simple thermometer, the Energy Club and the Transparent Staff of the Paks nuclear power station cooled down to measure the water temperature of the Danube. The plant had previously refused to issue the official test results: they did not respond to public demand for the Energy Club, G7 a previous article showed that the Paks metrological unit of the Directorate-General for Water had failed in early August.

According to the Ministry of the Environment of 2001, in order to protect the natural habitat of the river, the water temperature must not exceed 30 degrees on a 500 meter long river section from the cooling water outlet. If this happens, it is advisable to stop a few blocks until the temperature returns to the normal level.

However, the Transparant and the Energy Club now measure temperatures above 30 degrees above the cooling water outlet of the power plant, while the flow from the cooling water outlet was 25-26 degrees higher. The portal emphasizes that this can not be regarded as official measurement data, but the result is the same for itself.

Paks Nuclear Power Plant Ltd. has previously stated that if the water temperature of the Danube exceeds 25 degrees, this action will take: to periodically check the temperature of the river at 500 meters from the spill and, if necessary, to intervene and the amount of water supplied by the river. cooling system is used to increase. the transparent according to their measurement results it appears that this has not happened.
